Better than the average "B-western"
This film contains a very good ending. I like it. It may be a "B" but there's a lot of good public domain "B" films from the 1930s. This is one of them.

Ken Maynard Excellent in "Honor of the Range"
A fast paced western starring Ken Maynard in dual roles and Cecilia Parker as the love interest. Very good plot, reasonable acting, and interesting. The credits mention "Tarzan," which happens to be Ken Maynard's horse.

Ken did a good job of pulling off the dual role of town sheriff, and the timid shopkeeper.
In the thirties Ken was a major player in the "B" western genre, and this production was a notch higher than what was usually produced at the time.
I'll give it five stars since it was one of the bettet westerns of the time.

Honor or the Range
Nobody is a Ken Marnard fan and he's not so hot in this one either.
But the production quality is above average for this sort of film. The West is more realistic and the bad guys are really bad.
It's the same brother against brother story that turns up in old westerns. In this one you can believe the bad brother is actually insane, and that's different.
Better yet, someone paid attention to the scenery, it's very nice.
If it wasn't for the star this would be a really good movie.
